Yes, but I wouldn't reccommend it. If the seal is bad, much more should be done. Buy the whole kit from www.rollingperformance.com or another vendor LISTED IN FORCED INDUCTION.

Moving this post now. Please keep Supercharger posts in the proper forum.

I would definitely NOT recommend this unless you are sure it is bad. Mine was fine and I thought I needed everything replaced, so I put all new bearings, seal and coupler on. Turns out it was just the coupler. Problem is the machine shop still hasn't gotten the seal put in right. This is the third time I have had to take my supercharger back to them to have them put it in again. They have had it for almost 2 weeks now I am so upset with them, yet they are the only machine shop in town!!!

The trick is to get the seal back on properly without damaging it. Perhaps a seal installer.

And depending on your year (please put your year and model in your signature), the key for the pulley may have to be removed.

This is a terribly bad idea. You'll be better off pulling the SC altogether. It'll cost a little more, but take less time, and be much less likely to cause you headaches in the future.

I've replaced the oil seals on both of my bonnies, without removing either the supercharger or the snout, but I'd only recommend it if the supercharger has low miles and has no other known problems. In my experience, the nose oil seals are prone to leaks.

Once the pulley and the seal retainer were removed, I made a small puller out of a large washer and 3 small screws, and carefully drilled 3 holes in the seal and slowly pulled it out, wiped the mating surfaces, and carefully installed a new seal. I used the Vition verison of the seal rather than the Nitrile rubber version.

I'm actually rebuilding for the second time. I've never personally had a leak at the snout. But I certainly wouldn't replace just that seal without also doing the bearings in the nosedrive and the coupler at the very least.
